Valgrind and debuginfo

With debuginfo Valgrind can provide more useful information about issue found. But till recently it was sometimes hard to get at the debuginfo and valgrind startup time would be really slow parsing the debuginfo. With the introduction of debuginfod support getting the debuginfo is much easier, if your distribution supports it. And the parsing of debuginfo has been improved dramatically. This talk will explain how debuginfod integrates with valgrind and how the debuginfo parsing was improved.
